At the moment work is, as they say, “kicking my ass” as I attempt to complete some 3 weeks of work in 2 before heading off on vacation. At times like this, only one kind of album will do, and it’s being done the best right now by the 2-piece Vancouver rock juggernaut known as Japandroids. Guitars on blast, relentless drum assault, and lyrics that are simultaneously simple and empowering. No one does it better than these guys, and they’ve got a new video for the absolutely anthemic The House That Heaven Built, which is perfectly described in the video’s bio as “A sequence of touring, partying, and shenanigans”. All that AND it has a dude in a mosh pit with a Hitler moustache. Kind of hard to top that. Enjoy.
